APOLOGY BY PLATO TRANSLATED BY BENJAMIN JOWETT PDF

The Apology of Socrates, by Plato, is a Socratic dialogue in three parts that cover the Trial of Socrates BC : i the legal self-defence of Socrates, ii the verdict of the jury, and iii the sentence of the court. Part one: The defence of Socrates[ edit ] Socrates begins his legal defence by telling the jury that their minds were poisoned by his enemies when they the jury were young and impressionable. He also says that his false reputation as a sophistical philosopher comes from his enemies and that all of them are malicious, yet must remain nameless — except for the playwright Aristophanes , who lampooned him Socrates as a charlatan-philosopher in the comedy play The Clouds BC. About corrupting the rich, young men of Athens, Socrates argues that deliberate corruption is an illogical action because it would hurt him, as well. He says that the accusations of him being a corrupter of youth began at the time of his obedience to the Oracle at Delphi , and tells how Chaerephon went to the Oracle, to ask her, the Pythian prophetess, if there was a man wiser than Socrates.

In what relation the Apology of Plato stands to the real defence of Socrates, there are no means of determining. The facts of his life are summed up, and the features of his character are brought out as if by accident in the course of the defence. The conversational manner, the seeming want of arrangement, the ironical simplicity, are found to result in a perfect work of art, which is the portrait of Socrates. Yet some of the topics may have been actually used by Socrates; and the recollection of his very words may have rung in the ears of his disciple. The Apology of Plato may be compared generally with those speeches of Thucydides in which he has embodied his conception of the lofty character and policy of the great Pericles, and which at the same time furnish a commentary on the situation of affairs from the point of view of the historian.
